Rane presents the 2014 DMC USA DJ Battles 

Established in 1985, DMC DJ Battles are the biggest, longest running, most prestigious battles in the world, with branches worldwide. DMC DJ battles are the only national battles for turntablists, in the USA. DMC World & US champions include all stars like DJs CrazeKleverQbertAladdinMix Master MikeRectangleApolloGrand Master Roc Raida (RIP), Cash MoneyShifteeCheese,SwampChris KarnsP-TrixSlycePrecisionieMERGEnferno just to name a few! Any DJ who is a citizen can enter a DMC US regional DJ battle, there are no special invites or auditions. Everyone truly gets a chance, from first timers to the veterans.  It is a cultural imperative for DMC to ensure that this pyrotechnic style of Hip Hop DJing continues to progress, to inspire more practitioners to enter and to reach more fans! We hope you will join us this year on the battleground!

We have announced battles for New York City, Cincinnati, Hartford and Washington DC.
